Salado Del Rio at Fort Sam Houston Golf Course
Fort Sam Houston is home to two 18-hole courses, Salado Del Rio and La Lorna. The Salado del Rio course is the more scenic of the two, offering spectacular views of the rustic countryside. The historic facility boasts some famous players including Sam Snead and Arnold Palmer. The layout is also more difficult than the other championship course at the club due to the presence of numerous blind shots and water hazards. Both Fort Sam Houstan golf courses feature tight, tree-lined fairways and greens that are medium in both size and speed. In addition to the two golf courses, Fort Sam Houston also houses extensive practice facilities including a practice chipping green and lighted driving range.

Grew up on this course
Greens were fantastic for the course played great. Fairways were hard pan most of the time but enough grass to grab the ball. All in all great experience. Felt good to return to the course where I learned to play golf.
With the hot deals i use you can not beat the deal
Great for the price.
My only major concern with this course is the layout is a bit tricky considering they have little to no signage. It can be very easy to get mixed up and lost considering they have two courses there right next to each other. Great for the money though will keep going there
Really enjoyed the course and the pace of play, but the mud in front of most every green was very frustrating.
Beautiful weather, course in good shape, but a lot of wet areas around the greens.
Lots of dead grass
Parts of the fairways are just deadpan. Rough, there isn't really any, it is fairway or dead grass or just dirt and rock. Understand the dry warm weather but I am not sure this course has seen water other than the greens. Around the greens, it was mucky and muddy. Maybe use some of that water on the rest of the course.
How about a cart peraon since the turn isn't back at the clubhouse. Would be nice to have someone offer a drink.
The traps, full of water and unplayable.
It is obvious that no General Officers play this course or it would be in much better condition.
A great day and reminder
I felt humbled to play this course. My fellow golfers never played this course. You see many graves of fallen military and some of their family in the VA cemetery right next door. Thank you fallen heroes and souls for giving us freedom so that we can enjoy some golf and fun. God bless.
Pace of Play
It took myself and a 2 some, to play 9 holes tee time was at 9:40 we stopped at 1240. On hole #9. It was brutal There was no marshall to pick up play. If you are playing to slow the rule is to allow the group to play thru, and yet 3 hours to play nine holes of golf. Never will go there again.
Bang for your money
Nice course, fairways dry and each green is different but good bang for the buck
Great course for the money. Must have a pass or play with someone that has a military ID ACTIVE OR RETIRED.
